Two opposite sides of the story. Someone is lying.
I think Boise State had concerns over the buyout clauses that normally in place in the contract concerning a match-up that would be a two-for-one and a home and home series. The power conference teams will likely dictate that the first game of the home & home or quite possibly the first two games in the two-for-one will be at the power conference's place. If they win the first match-ups, they will buy-out the remaining games as it is better from a football and financial standpoint to buy out the away game and make more money in an additional home game the following year.
I do think Boise State has enough name and media recognition to make some demands as far as negotiations go for ballgames although the real powerhouses still control it (Florida hasn't left the state for a non-conference game for a long time). It's a different world now where you go play at a place just for the recognition and pride of "beating anyone, anywhere". Athletic departments must look out for themselves.
Fresno State is more of the play anyone, anywhere team.
